We introduced RES-Q to new ambassadors
10. 9. 2019 |
Director of External Affairs of our center, René Samek, met the new ambassadors of the Czech Republic in Prague and introduced them to the unique RES-Q platform RES-Q.
Developed by our Cerebrovascular Research Team, this Quality of Stroke Care Register maps out the performance and quality parameters of stroke care. Hospitals can compare how these patients treat compared to other hospitals in the early region, state, or worldwide. Health departments can use information from the system to improve the care of stroke patients.
"We originally developed the registry for the countries of Eastern Europe, but the interest in it was enormous. Now 980 hospitals from 61 countries around the world are using the platform today to monitor their own stroke care," said the neurologist and stroke program leader at St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno prof. Robert Mikulík, who is the main author of the whole concept of the RES-Q register. "Thanks to the ever-increasing number of stroke patients included in the registry, we can more easily find and implement new methods of care for them - wherever they are in the world," added Robert Mikulík.
"I met seven new ambassadors, and the registry interested everyone," René Samek said. “For example, the Ambassador to Japan promised to organize a visit to the local Ministry of Health and the largest Japanese hospitals. The new ambassador to Colombia will also help to spread the information to Panama and Costa Rica, which will fall within her remit.”
